Amnesty is hosting this pledge on behalf of the Irish Anti-Apartheid Campaign for Palestine
Please sign the pledge!
For over 75 years, Israel has created and maintained laws, policies, and practices that deliberately oppress Palestinians. This ensures Palestinians live under a system of Jewish-Israeli domination across Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT), and affects Palestinian refugees displaced in neighbouring countries.
The system is enforced by acts such as forcible transfer, drastic movement restrictions, fragmentation of communities, unlawful killings, arbitrary detention and torture, separation of families and the denial of nationality and citizenship rights to Palestinians.
Apartheid is a crime against humanity and is committed with the specific intent of maintaining a cruel system of control by one racial group over another.
Our campaign comprises over twenty Irish organisations who are committed to social justice and bringing an end to this cruel system of oppression against the Palestinian people.
We are campaigning to persuade the Irish government to officially recognise Israel’s system of apartheid, and to take meaningful action internationally, at the bilateral and multilateral level, to demand an end to it so that Palestinian women, children and men can live their lives in freedom without fear of persecution or violence.
If you want to help end apartheid, sign our pledge!
